Eddie Van Halen Attends Esquire 80th Anniversary Party
The guitar icon is among the personalities featured in "The Life Of Man," a new piece in Esquire. Van Halen, 58, is included in the photo gallery, and he speaks about the best advice he's received in a companion video to the story.
"The best piece of advice I've ever been given was probably from my father at an early age when we were making music and I would make mistakes," Eddie explains. "I would ask him, 'What do you do?' And he'd say, in Dutch, 'Gewoon door blijven gaan,' which means 'Don't stop and don't let the audience know you made a mistake. Or, smile and do it twice…then people think you meant it.'"
